  1. Thai font doesn't display properly. - Program : Affinity Designer 1.6.5.135 - Reproduce : type or paste thai characters in a document. - It happens to new document. This attachment show example of errors. - Font family : Cordia New ErrorThaifFont.afdesign
  2. Hi Affinity Still love your program I have a request for a feature. Right now I can only choose in the Fontmanager if a font is a favorite or not. So I have the problem that whenever I have to be aware of license issues I either have to look up the font for the license or the way I do it right now is to just put license free once in my favorite tab. I have a number of otions that could be done to solve this. 1. Have an Icon that shows if a font is license free or not 1.1 Best would be if this is set by Affinity itself but that is probably not possible since the license is not part of the font-file itself 1.2 Let the users set the icon themselfs--> Maybe collect the information in a DB to let affinity be able to give the information in the future?? 2. Give the possibility to create your own Font category, this would have the advantedge that you could not only sort your fonts by license / no license but also sort them for different styles like modern, vintage, crazy......whatever you would like to call them. 3. Do both the icon and the license icon, since both information do not exclude themselfs The way I see it there are only different lists behind the buttons --> All, Recent ,Favorite and used. So why not give the opportunity to create more that one of your own lists keep up the good work Peet@MD
  3. Happy new year guys! I am in the middle of creating my first font (handwritten) and use Affinity Designer for designing the digits. However, the process is very tenacious right now. Since I'm new to font development, this is my current approach and setup. I created a document with a growing number of artboards, one artboard for each possible digit, ligature, symbol, and so on. I created each digit using a stroke with slightly varying line widths at the beginning and end. The program into which the digits are imported works with PDF, SVG, EPS among other (to me unknown) file formats – that's okay, because I can output each digit with the export persona named accordingly. SVG is the recommended file format. But I do run into some problems: The exported digit-files MUST NOT be exported as a path with a stroke The exported digit-files MUST consist of a single shape. The exported digit-files (even if points 1. and 2. were taken into account) as SVG are created with a white box in the size of the artboard around them, which lead to another step of selecting and deleting something manually that actually wasn't created in the first place while designing the digit. (The document is set up with the check for Transparent background under the Colour dialogue) I would have guessed now I can select all contents of the different artboards via shift+click in the layers palette and convert them with a single click on "Expand Stroke" - but this is not possible, because the selection is automatically limited to the artboards and not to the children. SelectChildrenOverMultipleArtboards.mov Furthermore, I would have liked to use an action/macro to merge the multiple curves of single letters like A, B, E or F into a single curve - but unfortunately the macro palette only exists in Affinity Photo, if I see it correctly. Does anyone have an idea how to convert the files without all the unnecessary additional effort/tasks? Cheers and have a nice day MrDoodlezz
  4. Not only does the font-size selector not work, but check out its behavior when you manually resize the text: The displayed numeric font size changes as you resize the text, starting with the value you last selected in the drop-down list... even though that selection was ignored.

  5. Dear community, I am using the font "Sans Forgetica" (https://sansforgetica.rmit/) which is installed on my laptop. Every time I start Affinity Designer (version 1.6.5.135 on Windows7) and load a file which contains this font, the font cannot be loaded and has disappeared in the font list. After a reinstall of this font, it appears again in the font list... until I close AD and start it again... I can live with that, but it's a bit annoying and I don't know if it's a bug in AD. Regards, nyhet (Julia) from Berlin, Germany

    changing fonts crashes

    Hi, Every time i change font Affinity freezes forcing me to force quit. Both from the top or from the "character" panel. Doing something wrong?
  7. Currently I've been Downloading Fonts And Other assets onto my mac so That I can have a wider arsenal of resources. I was just doing a design for one of my friends and realized I couldn't find the font I just downloaded, I Thought it'd be amazing if there was little folders of some sort within the app that'll differentiate the downloaded "user" fonts, and the fonts that The computer you are using comes with, for better organization. even though i've never seen this feature on any other apps or software, is there a way you could implement this?
  8. Can somebody tell me if fonts are automatically embedded when exporting to PDF? I can't find anywhere to select 'embed fonts'. Thank you!
  9. I was wondering if it was possible to warp text in Designer. I attached an image with what I am trying to accomplish.
  10. Hello! This tiny trouble is something I was facing in the previous version too. Most of the time, if I want to change the font size- I have to manually put the number in. If I use the drop-down menu, it just previews the new size but does not apply it. Is it an error, or am I doing something wrong?

    Font List Locks Designer

    I just updated Affinity Designer to v1.6.1 in the 'App Store'. I'm using macOS 10.13.3. Once I attempt to change/choose fonts by clicking the drop down list, Affinity Designer locks up. I've even disabled all User fonts (just in case). I've even uninstalled/reinstalled the app.
  12. I have a little trouble to remove a font from both AD and AP on the iPad.. I go to the font section of the apps, and hit delete, but after reopening the apps, they are still in the font library in the apps. The reason I want to remove it, is because I'm designing a new font, and I want to put the latest version, to test it in some designs, but the old is still there.. And special tricks to remove fonts from the AD and AP on the iPad?
  13. Hello, Is it possible to create a font with Affinity Designer, and then install it to my Windows 10 PC, and use it in Microsoft Word or other applications? (Without paying for a third party software) Thank you
  14. I notice that this is a bit of glitchiness on the font display in Affinity Publisher 1.7.0.162. When you select a font there is a shaded area on top. I didn't really care about that before but not it shows duplicates of files that are activated. I checked to see if there was a problem with the font but in Designer it works perfectly - only one font family is listed. Please see images of Affinity Designer with that single font. Also please see that Affinity Publisher top list shows the duplicate while the scroll list on Publisher shows only one listing on the font. Hard to really explain. Please see images. The font in question here is Wolpe Fanfare but I have seen this issue with a few other fonts (and they are correctly installed and work perfectly in Designer).
  15. Hi. Sometimes I need to resize a text frame, and would love that the text inside grow or shrink proportionally to the frame. But it doesn't happen. Am I missing some command for that or Publisher don't allow this? If so, I'd like to ask you guys to consider it. Attached some images showing my problem.
  16. Hey there, I deleted Adobe Illustrator from my pc and started using Affinity Designer. I'm already getting used to it, but one questions for now remains: How do I hatch fonts/letters with a certain pattern (see attached picture as example, Letter "O" pattern) Thank you in advance.
  17. Hello. Sorry to bother, but I have a problem with Affinity Designer for Windows (right now I don't have a Mac at my hand, so cannot replicate the problem on there). Whenever I try to use some TTF fonts in a document and try to export it to PDF, these texts gets outlined/converted to curves. And I don't know, why. What am I doing wrong? These fonts are from the Softmaker Megafonts XXL fonts library and they did work in the past without problems in other graphical application, so I don't understand why they doesn't work in Affinity Designer. Here are my tryed settings (but whatever I do, it is the same, the texts get converted to curves): I tryed to make a test file and uploaded some of these fonts. Here is the test document: test.afdesign Here is the PDF, try to select both text with the selection cursor in Adobe Reader or similar PDF reading apps: test.pdf Here are two fonts: fonts.zip Does someone have any idea? Thanks in advance.
  18. Hyphenation works (german language), but the hyphens are not displayed or printed, when I use PS Type 1 fonts (TheSans). With TrueType or OpenType all works fine.
  19. Hello, Previously I bought Serif Page Plus X9. This a great program as long as you use latin alphabet based font. However, in my work I need to use CTL fonts, especially Khmer (Cambodian) Unicode Fonts and it is not to possible to write any words with Page Plus X9. Now I try Affinity Publisher and it is not possible to make any documents with CTL Unicode Fonts too. Is there any possibility to fix this problem in another version of the program?
  20. Hallo, Coming from Adobe creative suite after many years, especially photoshop and indesign I was so happy to stumble upon Affinity. Really excited by these guys at Serif. Anyway, I have a large indesign project which I need to re-create completely in Affinity publisher, and a minor part was copying some hebrew text (NewPeninimMT) and Adobe Caslon Pro font into Affinity. I did not expect them to display and expected the hebrew to give me a whole load of boring squares as is usual in other pieces of software and in indesign when I first tried it many years ago. But it displayed perfectly. The font box, however, did insert a question mark before the font name. The font list in affinity did not have either of these fonts and neither does my microsoft system, there are none stored at this time. Strange that it displayed at all.
  21. I updated Mac font library to include a new font. Switching back to Publisher, the app had a popup messaging about "updating the font library". I was unable to click anywhere on the app, or cancel said update. It remained like this for several minutes before I forced quit the app. Sorry Id isn't take a screenshot. Didn't think of doing this until after I restarted the program.
  22. I'm not sure if this is a bug, a feature that might need improving, or me missing how this works. I usually check my documents to make sure no stray fonts managed to get in, perhaps as an invisible character. I'm not clear as to what should happen when I select a font that I don't want and then click 'Locate'. It seems to take me to the page, but I was expecting the text with the font in question to become highlighted. I said, it seems to take me…, but as I click on other fonts in the list, the pages don't always change. Since the text does not seem to be getting highlighted, I'm not sure if this feature is working correctly. I just did a little experimenting. I changed some text to a different font not used in the document. Locate found the usage and highlighted it, however, I had Text Rulers on and the highlighted text was under the ruler so it was obscured. Other fonts in the Font Manager list that are stray do not get located. While experimenting, another font appeared in the list. Selecting that one and clicking the locate button also did not show anything. Where would these odd fonts be? On second thought, perhaps there is a bug in here somewhere. Separate Locate Next and Locate Previous might be handy. I notice that Undo and Redo can go backward and forward, but if you make another edit, Undo would be problematic. I don't know if a Locate All feature could work in some way. Then a 'Change All Instances', or 'Change Selected' would be a time saver for a very long document. Would a locate only in current text box and linked text boxes option be useful? How about, 'Exclude Placed Graphics', since AD files could be searched too and one would not want to change the font in a logo or other important graphic.

    Typeface design (WIP)

    Hello. I used AD to draw and slice single glyphs for my new comic book font... regular is done, others (italic, bold, bold ilalic) are still in progress. ... and here is the sampler:
  24. Placed (not opened) a PDF on an empty page. Worked well, but Publisher replaced a font (CopperBlack, which is not installed on my system) by Lucida Grande without warning. If you need the original PDF to analyze, please PM.
  25. I have issues including freezing/crashing while trying to select font for any text box. The only reason I can suggest except the software bug is that this might happen due to Korean fonts installed in my computer... Are there anybody experiencing the same issue with me?
